Cherry Blossom Branch Watercolor Painting

Cherry Blossom Branch watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.    This is listed on Ebay for Japanese Sunami relief as are a number of other paintings I have listed there.  There is a special meaning of the cherry blossom in the Japanese culture of the transitory nature of our lives, and embodies the "mono no aware" which is translated according to Wikipedia as an "empathy toward things", which is especially poignant in view of the recent disaster.  

"In the cherry blossom's shade
there's no such thing
as a stranger."

Kobayashi Issa

Koi Fish Watercolor Painting

 Koi Fish Watercolor Painting is 8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper. 

Inspiration this morning from "The Courage to Change" Al-anon devotional, talking about living in the present with a "childlike awe about the splendor of nature, to see the beauty all around me, to let my face break into a smile spontaneously, to laugh, to love, to live again.   Today I can say, 'Good morning, God,' instead of 'Good God, it's morning.' "

"Real generosity toward the future
consists in giving all to what is present."

are guests for only a few days,
Like the leaves of the water-lily,
they wither and fade and finally die."

Train Watercolor Painting


Train Watercolor Painting is 5 x 7 inches and was a special request by my grandson.  He was disappointed it was so 'small' but I told him we could laminate it and he would have it - and maybe more - to collect.

Pumpkin Harvest Watercolor Painting

Pumpkin Harvest watercolor painting is 9 x 12 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.   So good to be painting today.  ( I have been making an afghan as a present and forgot how time consuming it is!)   My seven year old grandson has a request for me to paint a train for him, so that will be next.

Melons and Cherries Watercolor Painting

Melons and Cherries watercolor painting is 8 x 10 inches.  I managed to get this done despite a very busy weekend preparing for a school presentation for today related to the two children's books I have illustrated:   WaterFire Duck and Bubble Butt, The Challenged Sea Turtle of Mystic Aquarium.  

 I have no hostility to nature,
but a child's love to it. 
I expand and live in the warm day like corn and melons.

Little Red Fox in the Flowers Watercolor Painting

 Little Red Fox in the Flowers watercolor painting is 8 x 10 inches on Arches 140 lb paper.   We had five pups in our yard one April and we did get some photos of them, but this photo reference is from Wet Canvas WDE (weekend drawing event).  My grandson alerted us to them when he came in to tell his mother about the puppies in the back yard.  They are not pack animals and when the mother deserted the den, the pups left after a few days of yelping for her. 

Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
